JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Super Bowl champion and Florida State University alum Michael Jennings was arrested on numerous drug charges after police raided an auto shop on Jacksonville's Westside Wednesday, authorities said.

Jennings, 36, of Jacksonville faces felony drug charges of selling of marijuana and possession of marijuana, cocaine, opium and steroids with intent to sell, according to the Jacksonville's Sheriff's Office.

Jennings has also been charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, jail records show.

About 3:30 p.m., the JSO narcotics unit was called to search Jack's Auto Service located in the 1900 block of Cassat Avenue.

Inside a supply closet at the business, JSO said, investigators discovered half a pound of marijuana, about 20 grams of powder cocaine, assorted opioid pills, crack cocaine, drug paraphernalia, 38 caliber live ammunition.

During the raid, officers also found marijuana inside the trunk of Jenning's car, JSO said, as well as a 38 caliber revolver in a shed being the auto shop. He also had $5,410 in his front pocket when he was taken into custody, police said.

The arrest comes after two separate drug deals earlier this month and in January, in which undercover officers purchased marijuana from Jennings, according to JSO.

Jennings is being held at the Duval County Jail without bond, according to jail records.

Jennings played in the NFL briefly for the New York Giants following his time as a track athlete at FSU and Nathan Bedford Forest High School. He was part of the Giants team that won Super Bowl XLII. A ruptured Achilles ended his run in New York and he hasn't played in a regular season game since.

He finished his NFL career after playing just eight games and produced only five catches for 49 receiving yards.
